    Ok, maybe I am stretching...

    But I am seeing this happen both internally and externally.

    When it freezes I will kill the app and then try to restart the stream, often it will not be able to find the Stream device immediately. If I come back in a few minutes later it will work fine - so I am pretty sure the connection between the IOS app and the TiVo stream is being lost.

    It happened to me just last evening during OOH streaming using a pretty good WiFi network watching Agents of Shield.

    If you want me to test anything, just let me know.

    Seems that there might be some validity to this. I transferred a 30 minute show at "Best" via the standalone Stream and it only took 10 minutes. The same show transferred via the Roamio's internal Stream took 13 minutes. Not a huge difference, but a difference.

    Used standalone Stream last night and it still froze, so this is not specifically related to the Roamio.

    Tonight I'm going to move the recordings I want to watch to my Premiere to eliminate the MoCa network as a potential cause of the issue. If that doesn't work then I'm back to blaming iOS7 and/or the TiVo app.

    OK for last night's test I used the standalone Stream and my Premiere, which is connected via Ethernet to both the Stream and the wifi AP, as the source. Same result! :( So whatever the problem is it seems to be related to iOS7 or the TiVo app update that came with it. I wish there was a way to revert my old iPad to iOS6 I'd try that and see if it "fixes" the problem. But at this point I'm out of troubleshooting options. Which means my only choice is to start using the clock app as a sleep timer. It has a "stop playing" option after a set time which seems to work for allowing the iPad to sleep even if the TiVo video freezes.

    Has anyone done any testing to confirm that the Tivo, Stream, and iOS device aren't losing network connection/disconnecting during the video freezes?

    I don't stream to my iPad often at home from the Tivo but other video streaming apps (HBO, SHO, On Demand, etc.) are working fine on iOS7 so far.

    I did as much as I could to eliminate a potential network problem. Although last night I was testing some downloads and every single one of them made it to completion and as soon as they did the iPad screen dimmed like it was about to go to sleep. So whatever this is it's only effecting streaming.

    I'd be more inclined to believe it was a network issue if I'd ever experienced this issue even once back when I was running iOS6. I bought my Stream the day they were released and used it without ever having this problem until iOS7 came along. A lot of things in my setup changed around that same time, so I was initially weary about blaming iOS7 but I did extensive testing ultimately reverting my entire system back to what it was when I know it worked and I still had the problem. So I came to the conclusion that it must be iOS7. Maybe it has something to do with that new background update it allows programs to do?

    Same problems here, very annoying. Streaming worked flawlessly until the update that contained the OOH streaming. Really wish Tivo would fix this. I've called a couple of times and they say it's nothing something they are aware of.
